    let's be honest BE sucks now Says:

    @JM: I agree. They had to kill their best and most beloved characters for shock value (Jimmy Darmody, Owen Slater, Richard Harrow, Angela Darmody, Eddie Kessler…). Other great characters left – besides Nucky, Eli and Capone – aren’t even given time of day anymore. If you’re going to shake things up, you better make sure you’re shaking them for a good reason, not just to fill some weird quota. When Jimmy was killed off, the emphasis was supposedly on showing how irreversibly corrupted Nucky’s soul had become. Yet despite Steve Buscemi’s great performance, Nucky hasn’t really changed much over the course of four seasons. Just killing a character for the sake of killing them isn’t good enough. If they’re going to die, it should at least be in the service of the show. This show was bound to end early.
